Adding featured page attribute to pages in bulk fails

Does anyone else have this issue?

Using V9, I go to the page search under site map. I then select a load of pages and bulk edit the attribute featured page.

I then go to a page with a page list that only shows featured pages and nothing shows. It seems the bulk editing is failing.

Can anyone confirm before I submit it as a bug?

I seem to remember an issue on something like that on GitHub, so check back through the issues and if found add your +1.
